Re: June Carter clip
I recall reading in one of Bill Anderson's books a story about a package tour that Jim was on and all the artist thought they were going to get to use Jim's band and Jim said "No, they are my band and I pay them and they are only backing me" and people got upset with Jim. This story was also told on "The Jim Reeves Story" cassette series I bought at the Jim Reeves Museum back in the early 90's. Anyway, this clip shows that Jim did allow other artist to use his band on occasions and I have seen a Pet Milk Grand Ole Opry clip from the 60's where the Blue Boys are backing up Billy Grammer on "Gotta Travel On", and the Norway show where they backed Chet Atkins, Bobby Bare and the Anita Kerr singers.
